If you are in the process of looking for a central heating system for your home, then you really should think about using designer radiators, as they have lots of advantages in comparison to traditional radiators. They can be an added attraction to your home, they can save you money as they are very efficient, and they can add money onto the value of your home as they are seen as a feature for buyers. The only difficult part about buying them is how to choose the best ones for your home. Here are just a few guidelines to help you find the perfect radiators.
The first thing you need to do is be very clear on what you want regarding radiator design, style and how much you can afford to pay. Try to have an idea yourself before you contact any merchants or even start to do any research into designer radiators, as everyone has different needs and you need to identify yours before anything else. For new installations it's important that the radiator has the power to efficiently heat up the room, aspects that will affect this include its exterior and placement, and in which direction the room is facing. You can always ask a local specialist plumber or heating technician for advice before making any decisions.
It is fairly simple to estimate if a particular radiator will be capable of heating up a room. First, establish the preferred temperature that you want the room to be heated to, for example, bedrooms are generally heated to 15 degrees whilst you may want a higher temperature of around 23 degrees for the bathroom. Next you need to calculate roughly the heat loss from your rooms; this will be based on where the room is situated in the house and how many windows there.
Here is an example if you are unsure. If you want a radiator for the bedroom then first multiply the volume of the room (use cubic feet) by 4. Then, take away 10% if you have double glazing, add 15% if the room faces north, and add 20% if the room has French windows. The number you are left with is the preferred output for the radiator in that room, in British Thermal Units. Just look online if you want more information on how to calculate this or ask your local heating expert for advice.
When choosing who to buy your radiators from it's important you look for a supplier who has been established for a number of years and has a good reputation. They should have a catalogue on their website with a wide choice of ranges and be able to offer all the leading British designer radiator brands, some well-known names to look out for include MHS Radiators, Aestus, Vogue, Radiating Style and The Radiator Company and Bisque Radiators. A reputable radiator company that knows what it is talking about will have a wide choice of heights and widths and heat outputs available.
The colour of your radiator is also very important as it has to fit in with your décor and furnishings, companies should give you plenty of choice with colour schemes and a selection of elite designs that appeal to all kinds of people and tastes. One further aspect you should look into before making any final radiator decisions is if they have accessories, such as towel rails.
